Title

A Study of Hydrogen Bond Strengths of Neutral Water Clusters (H₂O)[subscript N] Using Modified MNDO

Abstract

Semi-empirical molecular orbital methods proposed up to now seriously fail to describe hydrogen bonded systems associated with (H2O)n. A new scheme of parametrization using a semi-empirical method is proposed. We tested hydrogen bonding associated with the water clusters (H2O)n. The results are found to be close to ab initio Hartree-Fock quality, indicating a good promise for studying hydrogen-bonding systems other than O-H...O moiety.
